Why does solver "iterate" when using S() function? Message #1 Posted by JamesT on 28 Sept 2011, 6:42 p.m.
Hi All,
I have a simple unit conversion formulas that I use on my HP17BII /HP17BII+ and decided to consolodate 3 of these into a single menu using the S() function. I have 2 nested IF(S(nnn)... functions, with a total of 3 equations:
LENGTH: IF(S(MM) OR S(INCH): MM * 0.03937007874 – IN: IF(S(M) OR S(FEET):M * 3.280839895 – FT : KM * 1.609344  MILE))
The equation on the left most runs instantiously (mminch), while the two on the right iterate though the solution for some reason! On the 17BII, you get calculating, and the 17BII+ shows the min max iterations.
Run as standalone equations, they run instantly. Any ideas on how to fix this behavior?
